The owner of this property requires full payment to reserve.
Los Almendros in Playa Ocotal is best described as a place where you can do as much, or as little, as you want to. The owners were very accommodating and provide everything you could possibly need to enjoy the condo, ocean and beach. The complex has several lovely, secluded and shaded swimming pools to enjoy after a warm day of touring or beaching. The nearest town of Coco is a 10 minute cab ride for $6 for groceries, shopping and dining. The unit itself is located at the top of a hill and is at the very end and highest point. The view is fabulous. Every morning and evening we enjoyed "the Howler monkey show" from the back deck. One day a Mom and her baby were in the tree right beside the unit and posed for photos. There are Iguanas, Squirrels and beautiful birds everywhere. There is a bar/restaurant on the beach adjacent to the complex that is very laid back and serves decent food. We rented a car for 3 days from a rental agency in Coco for a very good price including insurance so I suggest you wait until you arrive to rent a car. The prices online before our trip were much higher. We flew into the Liberia airport and hired a driver to deliver us to Ocotal for $15 per person. f you plan to play golf, we played at Westin Playa Conchal and Four Seasons Papagayo. Of the two, the Papagayo course was by far the nicest for the money not to mention enjoying the gorgeous Four Seasons Resort property and ocean views. If we ever return to Costa Rica we will book this unit! Stayed: January 2016 Submitted: January 28, 2016
This condo was perfect, from the location to the amenities. The owners thought of everything from GPS and binoculars to kayaks and bikes and everything in between. We were able to snorkel right at the beach, as well as swim. The beach area was a little more isolated than some of the others which was nice. Office was right in the complex if there were questions and the location of the condo in the complex was the best as well. The condo was well decorated and very clean. The communication with the owner in advance and even during our stay was excellent. Restaurant close by and right on the beach to walk to. Everything exceeded our expectations and if we go back to Costa Rica, this will be the perfect place to stay again, without hesitation!
Wife, brother-in-law and daughter loved this place. Walking distance to beach, monkeys seen from the patio, dive shop at the bottom of the hill, snorkel gear with tons of nearby spots, highly recommended. Submitted: October 14, 2015
My husband and I spent our Honeymoon at Gail and Ron's condo on Playa Ocotal and LOVED IT!! The location was perfect with a fantastic patio that provided us with an amazing view of the beach to enjoy our morning coffee and evening wine :). I really enjoyed that Playa Ocotal was quiet and away from the crowds in Coco, but still close enough to Coco (we walked to town one day :)) to provide access to night life and restaurants. It was wonderful to have access to kayaks and snorkeling (which we did every day) at the condo and be able to walk right down to the beach to enjoy these bonus features! The staff were so helpful and set us up with an amazing sunset sailing adventure. They also helped set up a reservation at an adventure park where we were able to go zip lining, horseback riding and tubing. We felt safe, relaxed and welcomed throughout the entire experience and will no doubt visit again!! Stayed: June 2015 Submitted: August 28, 2015
My husband and I enjoyed a week at Ron and Gail's lovely home away from home after two weeks of traveling through Panama and the interior of Costa Rica. Ending up Beachside was the icing on the cake. The unit was perfect for us as it blended so well into the natural beauty of the area. The variety of wildlife right outside the door was astounding. We enjoyed the company of a large family of Howler Monkeys the second evening we were there from inside the screened porch for the better part of an hour. Every comfort and convenience was provided for within this unit that was necessary to relax in paradise. Everyone we met everywhere we went was kind and welcoming. I cannot say enough good things about the Management Team and the Security. It was truly one of the happiest places we have ever been. Thank you Ron and Gail for sharing with us. All of your travel tips were greatly appreciated and helped make this the vacation we really needed and thoroughly enjoyed. We hope to be back very soon for some more Pura Vida.
